Would like to see AFG bring it to NZ. They're in a bit of a limbo where they're consistently solid against minnows but never quite have enough sustain against the big dogs. Don't know much about NZ's t20 side but I suppose it's on par with their Test/ODI squads?

NZ have been getting away with running Conway as their keeper for a while now. He's not close to international standard as a keeper so it's always been a risk.
 
Doull reckons 165-170 will be "very, very competitive"
No way AFG make 170. They are 47 off 7 overs. Yes, no wicket but as soon as these guys start swinging NZ will capitalise (if they could field/WK we'd already have wickets) and the middle order Afghani batters will fall apart.

What other keepers do they have? I think Glenn Phillips is the reserve keeper in this squad

Well, Afghanistan are starting to move and still no wickets, as NZ continue to display world class fielding failures.
 
Finally the first wicket falls at 14.3 overs. NZ need to capitalise here.
